      "From February 7, 1705 until his death in 1739 he is continuously in the records, and he held Public Office continuously from June 29, 1724 when he was appointed Under Sheriff (Orders p. 176), and was subsequently appointed Acting Sheriff, High Sheriff, Coroner and "Gentleman" Justice, serving many years in latter capacity with such men as Augustine Washington, father of George Washington, on the Judge's bench."

      His Will, dated Oct 19, 1793, probated Nov 27, 1739, his daughter Hannah Footman inheriting his landed estate, and his widow the bulk of his personal property. His Will also stipulated if his daughter Hannah Footman died without heirs "of her body" the estate left to her was to go to "my kinsman" John West, of Northampton County
